Rather than a "rewrite", I suggest proposing small, incremental, reversible
changes.  Governance is easy to mess up.

It would be so nice if we could write unit tests for governance docs to make
sure that as they evolve they still solve all the old problems they were
intended to address.

+1 for moving towards a situation where podlings MAY rather than MUST write
bylaws.  Dunno if a Board resolution is needed.
